Course Description:

Learn basic "Boro" stitching with indigo dyed small pieces of cloth. In Japan, Boro (rag or scraps of cloth that are sewn together) was a symbol of an impoverished past. Now the term also encompasses and represents an essential principle of rural ethics and aesthetics. Inspired by this Japanese mending technique, explore your own visual expressions through exercises, e.g. cutting, patching, and stitching. The fabric set (hand-dyed fabric pieces with various shades of indigo blues by your instructor) is included in your tuition, will be available to pick up at the front desk during EAC hours. Shipping is available with advance notice (at least 7 days prior) for an additional charge.
